About Me

My name is Nicola Poole and I have been weight training for over 17 years.  In my early years of training I competed in natural bodybuilding. Shortly after that I discovered a talent for powerlifting; my achievements include Devon and Southwest Champion between 2004-2009 as well as the following main ones:

2004 – U60kg British Champion (equipped)
2005 – U60kg third at Western European Cup and Commonwealth Cup
2006 – U67.5kg British Champion (unequipped) and British Record Holder
2007 – U60kg British Champion (equipped) and U60kg Western European Cup Champion
2008 – U60kg British Champion (equipped), U60kg Western European Cup (2nd) and U60kg World Championships (13th overall, 7th deadlift)
2009 – U60kg British Champion (equipped) and U60kg Western European Cup Champion

I taught Physical Education in Primary and Secondary schools for 14 years until I started my personal training career. I have participated in many sports over the years but weight training has always been my passion, I love being in gyms and the feeling you get from a great workout, but I understand that it isn’t always like that for other people. I qualified as a personal trainer so that I could pass on my enthusiasm and experience onto others and hopefully enable clients to enjoy training as much as I do. My extensive gym knowledge in conjunction with my vast teaching experience allows me to provide a first class personal training service for all my clients.
